Do not displease yourself to please others

For years, I lived in the agony of fear and doubt, low self-esteem wasn’t left out. I was so engrossed with pleasing everyone not minding my own personal feelings. Gaining people’s approval before taking any step was more important to me than everyother thing.

I thought I could make a name by pleasing the majority, but I found out I was only wasting a great deal of time! I left my dreams, pursuing those of others. I was consantly confused and could only find confidence in the approval of others.

But something happened on a fateful night, I woke up with a heavy heart and thoughts started running through my indolent mind. As the usual, lazy fellow, I tried my best to get back to sleep, but I couldn’t. Then I had to succumb, I gave listening ears to that faint inner voice;

“Is it worth it?”
“Would you sacrifice your passion and future to please others?”
“Can human beings ever be pleased?”

I was shocked, I felt as if I was just unveiled.

I took time to evaluate myself and I found out that I had just been wasting.

“No! This has to stop.”

I saw all reasons to stop pleasing others at the expense of my own self.
I made an intentional decision that night; never again will I set myself on fire to keep others warm.

That marked a turning point. Since then, my life has never been the same.

I hope a reader of this story, will make an intentional decision today.

Remember, you are the captain of your own ship.
